The Rudolf Augstein Foundation is a non-profit and independent foundation under civil law. We commemorate one of the most important German journalists of the 20th century; through our foundation’s work, the concerns that motivated our namesake and thought leader Rudolf Augstein can continue to be addressed into the future.
We do this by encouraging critical and independent journalism, improving the starting and development opportunities of disadvantaged children and young people, and enabling artistic experiments.
Due to the spread of the coronavirus, we suspend our current application round in the art funding area until further notice. Alternatively, we are currently identifying possibilities for relief efforts to support artists quickly and unbureaucratically. More information on our current measures can be found here.
You can submit an application at any time in any of our three funding areas. For art projects there are fixed submission deadlines; in this case, your application will be considered for the upcoming submission deadline, currently 1st April 2020. All important information can be found here.
